A-line Skirt for the B-Bus.

I made an A-line skirt from this funky IKEA dandelion puff (?) graphic canvas and have donated it to the silent auction and fundraiser party extravaganza happening Saturday, February 11th at Mt. Mac for the Beaulieu family. I have also donated 2 t-shirts with Heather Ross banana seat bicycles appliqued on the fronts - very cool! So place your bids folks!
Tee's embellished with Heather Ross fabrics.  Bikes, Fish, VW vans!
Here are the details straight from the facebook page:
Join us for a rockin' night of music and dancing with Meat the Vegans, Rick Sward and his Dirty Little Secrets, Electric Cheese, and Second Cousins, and in the process help us raise some cash so that the Beaulieu family can finally start to transport their family safely!

Most of you who live in Whitehorse probably know the Beaulieu family and you have probably seen (or been run over by) Ross and Finn motoring around town at insane speeds in their power wheelchairs. Ross and Finn both have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a degenerative muscular disorder which is progressive in nature, causing all muscles to become weaker over time. Since Ross and Finn both use power wheelchairs on a full-time basis, the Beaulieu family needs a specialized wheelchair accessible van with a ramp and proper restraint system in order to safely transport their family. The family is currently using an old, non-converted mini-van with an improper ramp and tie-down system to transport the boys. The old van is now overdue to be replaced and the Beaulieu’s are in critical need of an appropriate vehicle to safely meet their family’s transportation needs.

All proceeds from this event will go directly towards the purchase of a wheelchair accessible vehicle for the Beaulieu family.
If you are unable to come to this event but would still like to help out, we are looking for merchandise donations for the silent auction. Alternatively, cash/cheque donations can be made to the YUKON COUNCIL ON DISABILITY EMERGENCY FUND. All donations can be mailed to or dropped off at the YCOD office at 4194- B, 4th Ave. Whitehorse, YT Y1A 1J8. YCOD is a non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductible.

The twin to this skirt just might be on its way to Guelph for my good friend K who sent me the fabric - thanks K! Next up, one for me!
